. that brings us to iran. we are using diplomacy to fully identify and address the threat brought to us by iran's nuclear program. it is a real threat. we have always taken it as such. we have no illusions. let me restate something that president obama has made clear since day one and reiterated again this afternoon -- we will not allow iran to acquire a nuclear weapon, period, not now, not ever. now, believe me, the united states fully understands that israel perceives a nuclear iran as an existential threat. why? because it is. and we understand that. while we may sometimes favor a , therent tactical choice u.s. and israel have always shared the same fundamental goal. as we move forward in this negotiation, we will continue to consult very closely with israel, as with our other friends and allies in the region and around the world, whose input is critical to us in this process. this week, prime minister netanyahu's advisor will travel to the united states with direct conversations -- for direct conversations with our iran experts. that will help us to coordinate and shape our positions with r
picked. but it's semantics. because the fundamentals are the following. president obama made it very clear iran will not have nuclear weapons. that's his red line. prime minister benjamin netanyahu said iran will not have nuclear weapons capability. that's his red line. but the difference between those two creates a certain gap. is that gap fundamental? no. because the bottom line is the same. they have different red lines but they have the same bottom line. iran will not be a nuclear weapon country. and this is what we have to remember. that israel and the united states are completely aligned on that issue. now there might be different paths to get to that result. and there might be disagreements along the way between friends. but the bottom line which is reese really -- which is really important in lifer is the ball line. >> rose: there are people who come to this table and make the following argument. why now. the reason the iranians are talking is because of the sanctions. why not pile on more sanctions so they will not make an interim agreement they'll say okay we can't live w

with prime minister netanyahu almost daily and i think both president obama and secretary kerry gave prime minister netanyahu their assurances that israeli will be involved in these scheduletations on how to get this comprehensive deal with iran. the threat, israeli threat of a military strike to go after iran's nuclear program is still out there. obviously, they don't want to do that, so they want to make sure israeli is comfortable with any ultimate deal. >> let's move on here dealing with kerry's only mission on this trip is not that. he is tying kick-start peace talks between the israeli and palestinians. how is that going? >> reporter: this is his ninth trip, secretary kerry, to the israeli and palestinian territory. in july you remember he gave the israelis and palestinians a nine-month deadline to reach a peace deal. we are about four months in so the clock is ticking and i think it's fair to say there is little progress. today, general john allen who has been working with contrary on israeli security issues, will present some detailed ideas on how israeli security needs, particular
despite very public agreement between president obama and prime minister netanyahu. kerry hopes by reassuring israel, we can move to the next conversation about mideast peace. >> do we expect kerry's statements on iran that have any i will pact on peace talks with palestine? >> i think what we're already seeing is that the iran deal is limiting the u.s. capacity to negotiate, to have leverage over the israels. every analyst here, every official who knows prime minister netanyahu says the u.s. didn't listen over iran, therefore he won't listen to the u.s. john kerry and his advisors are pushing forward with a peace process plan emphasizing security. kerry will talk about the security of israeli. >> we'll see where these talks will lead, reporting live in jerusalem, thank you. >> the 14-year-old massachusetts boy accused of slitting the throat of his math teacher in a school bathroom is pleading not guilty. phillip chisholm appeared in court to enter his plea, charged with killing 24-year-old teacher and dumping her body near the school. he is held without bail. >> the arizona div
